City Description for Relocating to Portland Metro

Sherwood, Oregon

The Tualatin Indians were the first people to roam the Sherwood area. The first wagon train arrived in Oregon in 1843 and by 1853 Sherwood was being settled by farmers. In 1885, J.C. Smock gave the railroad the right-of-way through his property and the area became known as Smockville. The main industry for the area in the early 1890’s was building bricks which were used in most of Portland’s buildings at the time. The brickyard closed in 1895 and fruit and vegetable cannery and tannery became the main industry until 1971. The city’s main industry now is manufacturing.
